Kenai Elks Lodge #2425 Easter Extravaganza

40th Home Show had more vendors than ever.

The Kenai Peninsula Builders Association (KPBA) celebrated its 40th anniversary with an incredible showing at this year’s Home Show. Executive Officer Kirsten Raye chose to bring in some changes to mark the hallmark anniversary and they were well-received by the vendors and public alike. The event featured over

130 booths from builders, realtors, bankers and home décor businesses — everything tied to the home building industry, and even medical care. With over 65 KPBA members participating in the show, folks were abuzz with the volume of builders available to them. Hundreds of folks stayed at the show throughout the day, winning door prizes,

the first booth as you enter the show. “We had a great booth this year with a lot of products that most folks haven’t seen before and we had a lot of giveaways and drop in outdoor ranges for that outside picnic area you’ve been thinking about for summer,” said Jeff Warton, SBS Kenai store manager. “We’re excited because break-up came a little early

this year, which gives folks more time to complete their projects and enjoy the summer,” said Warton. For 40 years, the managers of SBS have used the Home Show as an unscientific economic indicator of the coming building season — with the crystal ball passing from the late Paul Moses to Rick Abbott and now Jeff Warton See KPBA, page A2

SPD Officer Berestoff presents medals for the top 5 D.A.R.E. essays.

For over 20 years, the Soldotna Police Department (SPD) has run Drug Abuse Resistance Education, commonly known among local youth and parents as D.A.R.E “There’s been several D.A.R.E. officers before me but the program has been running since I joined the department and that’s been 19 years now,” SPD Officer Berestoff said at the annual D.A.R.E. lock-in and awards celebration at SoHi. “This is our graduation ceremony and lock-in that we’ve been doing for 13 years. It’s a way for all of the kids from all the participating schools to get together and celebrate the fact that they’ve completed the 10-week program and enjoy their accomplishment, while having fun in a safe environment that we provide for them,” ex-

plained Berestoff in an interview with the Dispatch. “The program gives them the skills and teaches them the ability to be able to make safe and responsible decisions as they get older. We break down the D.A.R.E. decision-making model and that helps them define what the problem is, assess the situation, respond to the situation and then evaluate their decision on whether or not it was a good decision that they made. It mainly helps them deal with problem situations as they are presented to them throughout life. In a nutshell, teaching them how to make good choices,” said Berestoff.

The top five finalists in the essay competition were called on stage, recognized and given a D.A.R.E. mascot Darin’ the Lion. “The overall winner gets to keep the Darin’ that I bring back and forth to the schools with me. At every class I give the doll to a member of the class and they are given the opportunity to make an appropriate decoration for it. I keep all those decorations on the Darin’ throughout the entire program so the big prize is that the overall essay winner gets to keep the keep the Darin’ that was my personal doll,” he said.

“I think it’s going to be a great year. We’re already seeing an uptick in business Continued from page A1 probably because of the early start, but judging by the number of people starting projects from kitchens to decks I’m forecasting big and going long,” predicted Warton. As always, door prizes were given every 10 minutes, and the Home Show Shed raffle was drawn at the very end of the show with this year’s winner being Fred Braun of Jack White Realty.

. . . D.A.R.E.

Over 155 kids participated in this year’s D.A.R.E. program, and each turned in Continued from page A1 an essay. One winner is selected from each class with one overall winner in the end. “It was not easy to pick just one, there were some great essays this year,” he said. But in the end it was 11-year-old Alexis Simmons, a fifth grader at Soldotna Elementary School who was given the honor of reading her essay in front of the entire assembly at the lock-in. “I learned a lot about not doing drugs and being safe and responsible. I think the best way to resist peer pressure is just to say ‘no’ if it’s not a good thing to do. “Peer pressure comes from kids your own age that are around you a lot of the time and what to get you to do the things they do which can lead to some bad choices,” said Alexis. Alexis won a brand new mountain bike donated by the Rotary Club of Soldotna. “It was really great because I’ve out grown my old bike. I’m too tall for it, but now I have a new bike and it’ll be a lot of fun riding it this spring and summer,” smiled Simmons. Former SPD D.A.R.E. instructor Tobin Brennan, who got a promotion last year and passed the D.A.R.E mantel to Officer Berestoff, was also present along with SPD Chief Mlynarik in honoring the students. “I really love this program. It’s a big part of the last 10 years of my career and it’s still very important to me. The results are obvious in the lives of the kids that have completed the program through the years,” said Brennan.

Club hosts adoption events for birds whose owner died ANCHORAGE — An Alaska bird club has begun hosting adoption events for pets whose owner died last month, according to the organization. The nonprofit Alaska Bird Club is working to find homes for each of the hundreds of cockatiels the man left behind, KTVA-TV reported Monday. “It was a sudden, unexpected death, so he hadn’t made any prior sort of arrangements for what would happen to the birds,” said Amber Morris, the club’s vice president. The birds were kept in a special aviary room with branches and nesting boxes in the owner’s home. The club will maintain them there with the family’s help while searching for new owners, Morris said. The club gathered 175 birds for the first adoption event Sunday inside a training center used by Bob’s Services Inc., a truck equipment company. Two more events are planned in the coming weeks for more than 100 cockatiels remaining to be adopted, Morris said. “Usually our adoption program is just one at a time, two at a time, maybe somebody, you know, passes away and leaves us up to 10, so this is quite a number,” Morris said. Some prospective adopters at Sunday’s event said they were searching for new companions for birds they already have at home, while others said were looking for new experiences. “I’m really excited,” said Kayla Oaks, who rescued four cockatiels. “They’re all super cute, and I hope that I’m going to be able to give them the best life possible.” — Associated Press

From fire hazard to fish habitat By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

Several local and state agencies recently collaborated on an initiative to protect people from wildfires while also protecting riverbanks from erosion. The initiative, Spruce for Salmon, provided black spruce trees — cut down in Sterling — to property owners to place along riverbanks. Known as revetment, the process prevents soil erosion and provides shelter for juvenile fish. Over the course of several days last week, property owners picked up dozens of felled spruce trees from the Kenai River Center to be used in various stream bank protection projects.

ANCHORAGE — A Seward man charged with two counts of first-degree murder told authorities he fatally shot two men inside their van after an argument broke out when he told them to leave the property, according to court documents. Joseph Chandler Jr. is being held in the Monday shootings that killed Dustin Marx, 28, and Michael White, 40, in the small port community of Seward about 120 miles south of Anchorage. An affidavit by Alaska State Trooper John King said Chandler called troopers shortly after 6 p.m. Monday to report he shot

Lawmakers hear testimony on pre-K funding bill By Ben Hohenstatt Juneau Empire

The public and senators had a lot to say about a bill that could expand early education programs in Alaska. A Senate Education Committee meeting Tuesday morning focused on providing time for public testimony on Senate Bill 6, which would allow schools to apply for three-year education development grants over the course of five years. At the end of the meeting, the bill was set aside for further consideration. “Decades of research demonstrates pre-K makes a difference,” said Stephanie Berglund, CEO for thread, a nonprofit that works to in-

crease access to early care and education. “We can invest now or pay more later.” The proposed bill requests

about $3.4 million for fiscal year 2020 for pre-K grants and $361,600 in that same period for education support

and administrative services, according to the bill’s fiscal notes. Others present who spoke favorably of expanding early childhood education included City and Borough of Juneau School District Superintendent Bridget Weiss, Executive Director for Best Beginnings Abbe Hensley, National Education Association-Alaska President Tim Parker and Sen. Tom Begich, D-Anchorage, who co-sponsored SB 6. Parker said strong early childhood education is part of the promise implicit in the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development’s name, which is different from what many other states call a department of

education. “We’re the Department of Education & Early Development,” Parker said. “This bill is pushing us in this direction. We should lean into that promise.” Berglund, Begich, Hensley, Weiss, Parker and members of the public said strong pre-K programs have positive effects. They said such programs are tied to readiness for kindergarten, improved academic performance, higher high school graduation rates, lower incarceration rates and higher future earning. Others who gave testimony included educators and grandparents who spoke positively about pre-K pro-

Dance project inspired by trip to Japan By VICTORIA PETERSEN Peninsula Clarion

Performers from the Diamond Dance Project, a dance studio near Kenai were inspired to create an entire concert based on one dance troupe’s trip to Kenai’s sister city, Akita, Japan. Last summer, an all-female dance group from the studio was invited to perform hip-hop in the sister city. While in Japan, the seven dancers performed in a concert alongside a local high school dance troupe and represented Kenai on a float in the city’s Diamond Dance Project, a local dance studio, performed an original dance concert annual Kanto Festival, a “Taiko” inspired from their recent dance trip to Japan at the Soldotna High School ausummer festival where ditorium on March 24 .

On the eve of her confirmation vote, Amanda Price spoke to media members and legislators to try and clear up what she called “distorted” details of her personal and professional past. Price, who is Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s selection for the commissioner of the Depart-

ment of Public Safety, has had a particularly contentious confirmation process. Legislators questioned her for the third time Tuesday, probing about her qualifications, her interview process and her departure from the previous administration. Price, a former advisor to former Gov. Bill Walker, said she was asked to resign from that position by former

Chief of Staff Scott Kendall. She said she inferred that her forced resignation was at least in part because she expressed concerns about criminal justice reform legislation Senate Bill 91. During a confirmation hearing last week, Kendall testified that Price was habitually absent from work during their two years workSee PAST, page A3

unauthorized bank transfers By Brian Mazurek Peninsula Clarion

A Kenai man has been charged with theft after allegedly transferring money from his grandmother’s bank account to his own without permission, according to an affidavit filed at the Kenai Courthouse on Monday.

On March 26, state troopers received a call from a woman who reported that someone had taken $5,000 out of her bank account. According to the affidavit, the woman suspected her grandson, Cody Little, 18, had taken the money. The woman showed troopers a copy of See BANK, page A3

his attitude toward the inevitable erosion of the riverbank is “not on my watch.” The Spruce for Salmon initiative came about this year as a continuation of the Sterling Fuel Break project, which began back in 2016. Agencies, including the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, the Alaska Division of Forestry, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the Kenai Peninsula Borough, Chugachmiut Corporation and Cook Inlet Regional Incorporated, initially aimed to clear roughly 8.5 miles of land on the border between Sterling and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Assistant Fire Management Officer Mike Hill said that this area was chosen because of its proximity to a residential population as well as its concentration of black spruce trees, which is the most flammable species of tree in Alaska. Hill said that the purpose of a fuel break is to slow down and contain the spread of wildfires, giving emergency responders more time to act and potentially saving lives. As the spruce trees fell, questions arose as to what to do with them. Last year Hill and his team experimented with the idea of giving the spruce to homeowners with riverfront property for revetment. Revetment is a process where spruce trees are are installed parallel to the riverbanks and secured with cables and earth anchors buried underground, according to a guide on stream bank

my magazine into Michael White as he was scurrying” from the front seat to the back of the van, according to the affidavit. “I presumed to execute Michael White as he was reaching for something,” Chandler told the trooper. Chandler, 30, also told King the Seward men were “not supposed to be on the property,” according to a court affidavit by King. The

men spoke for up to 20 minutes and got into a heated conversation, according to the trooper, who wrote that Marx called Chandler names, “made verbal threats and ‘gestures’ with his hands in his pockets.” “I asked Chandler if there was something specific in the incident that caused him to draw his gun, and he indicated it was when Marx said he would kill him ‘eventu-

ally,’” King wrote. He said no weapons were found in the van. No attorney is listed for Chandler in online court records. Chandler made a first appearance in state court Tuesday morning, but the Kenai District Attorney’s office, which handles Seward cases, didn’t immediately return phone calls to The Associated Press with the outcome of the hearing.

revegetation and protection published by ADFG. The trees overlap with each other and decrease the amount of runoff and erosion that occurs on the riverbank by capturing the sediment that would otherwise fall into the water. Decreasing runoff is important for fish habitats and especially juvenile salmon populations, because excessive sediment can kill salmon eggs, make it difficult for juvenile salmon to see their prey and irritate gills to the point of infection and death. The overhanging branches of the spruce trees also slow the flow of the river along the banks, provide shelter for ju-

venile fish and provide insects for the fish to eat. Hill said that last year’s experiment giving away spruce trees proved to be a success. The revetment process provided property owners a relatively easy, inexpensive and nonintrusive option for bank protection when compared with other techniques. “The biggest limiting factor of revetment actions is the availability of materials,” Hill said, noting that it is not always easy for a homeowner to find a couple dozen spruce trees to use for their riverbanks. Hill said that giving the trees a new purpose is a much preferred alternative to simply

burning them or sending them through a wood chipper. With that in mind, the agencies working on the Sterling Fuel Break teamed up this year with the Kenai River Center to launch Spruce for Salmon in earnest. Black spruce trees that had been cleared during the last week of March were made available for free at the Kenai River Center for private homeowners to use in their stream bank protection projects. According to Hill, the trees were all spoken for within a couple of days, and another crop of them could be made available once the Sterling Fuel Break project has been completed.

Contemporary, lyrical, ballet, jazz, tap and even salsa dancing were all incorporated into the diverse concert. “A lot of people think that we just do hip-hop, but we’re very diverse,” Jessie Soyangco said. “We’re a nationally ranked studio.” “I think we were able to do a little bit of everything,” Crystal Soyangco said. Crystal Soyangco said she didn’t know how the community would receive the performance. “We never know how the audience is going to receive things,” she said. “We’re still working on building our audience too and we never know how people are going to respond to it. Usually, when people hear dance they think dance recital, and we’re like ‘no, no, no. It’s a concert.’ We just want to make sure the community knows how grateful we are. We thought it was an overwhelmingly good experience.” The Soyangcos said

been laid off and denied unemployment benefits. After further questioning Little allegedly admitted to transferring the money from his grandmother’s account to the joint account. Little reportedly told troopers that he had made the transfers online by guessing his grandmother’s password until he got it right. Little was not arrested at the time of the interview but a summons was issued to him later that day. Little faces three counts of second-degree theft, a class C felony, for the three individual transfers and one count of fourthdegree criminal mischief, a class A misdemeanor, for accessing his grandmother’s bank account without permission.

they strive to do new things with each performance. This most recent concert was no different. Instead of using the Kenai Central High School auditorium, the studio opted for Soldotna High’s auditorium, which Crystal says hasn’t been used for a dance performance in a long time. “People asked us why we used that instead of Kenai,” she said. “Even some of the dancers were a little apprehensive about it, but they all said they really liked performing there.” The Soldotna High auditorium has catwalks that hang in the air, which the studio decided to work into the show. “We strive for newer things in this community and something different,” Jessie Soyangco said. “This time around we had dancers 40 feet up in the air.” “Everyone was like ‘ooooh’,” Crystal Soyangco said. “It was one of the biggest things we’ve done, being up that high. I commend our dancers for being up there that high.” The dancers who braved the catwalk were the same who traveled thousands of miles last summer to visit Kenai’s sister city in Japan. The studio’s season starts in the fall, but they perform all year round. Their next performance will be a free show at the May 18 Wednesday in the Park at Soldotna Creek Park.

ing together. Former Deputy Chief of Staff Marcia Davis testified that Price was a hard worker whose work wasn’t necessarily at a desk. At 1 p.m. Wednesday, a joint session of the Alaska House and Senate will meet to vote on whether to confirm the governor’s appointees. Speaking to media members Tuesday, Price said she wanted to clear the air a bit after last week’s hearing. “There have been a great number of concerns surrounding ability to pass background checks, surrounding work ethic, surrounding education,” Price said. “They have been relayed and have gotten incredibly distorted

and a lot of that conversation has distracted from the very important decision and work underway in the department to protect Alaskans.” Price, surrounded by other DPS officials, called herself an “unconventional pick” for the position because she has not served in any law enforcement agency. She said other DPS officials were also skeptical of her when she first was appointed. Those officials, including Alaska State Troopers leaders, fire safety leaders and a Public Safety Employees Association representative, roundly said Price has won them over since taking over in December. DPS Deputy Commissioner Michael Duxbury was particularly vocal and passionate, accusing some naysayers of Price’s as “mi-

sogynistic” and that a man in her position might not be getting similar criticism. The House State Affairs Committee posed questions to Price for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon. They pointed out that she took a different background check than Troopers have to take, which Duxbury said is standard for political appointees. They asked about her previous experience and her departure from the Walker administration as well. During the press conference and the confirmation hearing, Price admitted that she could have been clearer during the confirmation process and on her resume. For example, she put on her resume that she attended the University of Alaska Anchorage for three

years — which is true. She didn’t put on there that she got a degree — which she did not. But looking at the resume, one might assume that because she listed her education on there, she got the degree. When it was discovered that she did not have a degree, it appeared to some that Price had misrepresented herself on the resume. Dunleavy has been dogged in trying to get Price confirmed, as the administration has even sponsored Facebook advertisements supporting Price. “The governor has shared his support for Commissioner Price and looks forward to getting her into the department, continuing on the good work they’re already doing,” Shuckerow said at the press conference.

the data provided was cherry picked to depict pre-K in a positive light and largely repudiated the idea that pre-K gives students an advantage. Boyle is listed as a senior education policy fellow on the Alaska Policy Forum website, but said he was offering testimony on his own behalf. He cited a recent Vanderbilt University study that showed pre-K programs do have early positive effects but students who were not enrolled in pre-K eventually catch up to their peers. He also said pre-K programs insert the state into a role that should be filled by parents and suggested legislators consider a pilot program that would get parents more

involved in early childhood education. “I have faith in parents, and that they know their kids better than the government does,” Boyle said. After that testimony wrapped, Begich countered by saying there are many studies that show quality preK advantages do not fade, and he similarly recommended committee members research the matter. “No cherry picking here, Mr. Chairman, just the facts,” Begich said to Sen. Gary Stevens, R-Kodiak, chairman for

the committee. During Weiss’ testimony, she spoke strongly in favor of pre-K and child care. She offered anecdotal evidence that such programs make a difference and said lack of child care is a concern in Juneau. Weiss is part of a CBJ Assembly Childcare Committee examining that matter. Additionally, Weiss said she hopes the district will be able to put together Juneauspecific data about the impact of pre-K programs over summer.

grams. However, not everyone who spoke was in favor of the bill. David Nees of Anchorage, who called to offer testimony, said the bill had some good ideas, but he would like to see state-specific data regarding the effectiveness of pre-K programs. “You have had many thousands of children go through the program, but you have no data,” he said. Caller David Boyle urged committee members to do their own research and said

What Others Say

Colleges, not legislators, must find ways to solve admissions scandal It’s seldom a good thing when

California lawmakers go into headline-reactive mode, quickly proposing a new law — or several — in response to a major story that has grabbed the public’s attention. A recently proposed package of legislation inspired by the college admissions scandal is unfortunately another example of how that process can go wrong. Two of the six bills respond to the fraud itself, in which dozens of parents allegedly rigged college entrance exams or paid bribes to secure spots for their children at exclusive colleges. But because the scandal also brought attention to troubling but legal aspects of college admissions that favor the wealthy and connected, much of the legislation is not aimed at criminal behavior but simply at making the admissions process more equitable. Unfortunately, some of the bills are unnecessary, others are poorly thought out and one would require the state to interfere in the practices of private organizations in potentially harmful ways. One would require three college administrators at the University of California and California State University to check each “admission by exception” before the student is accepted, apparently to root out fraud and dishonesty. These generally are students who might not be accepted for their academic achievements alone but who are considered highly desirable by, say, an athletic coach or a musical director. But UC already is examining how to tighten its procedures to prevent fraud among these socalled side-door admissions, which add up to 2% of all students accepted. The Legislature would be wiser to let the state’s colleges take a careful look at the situation and come up with their own solutions — because the colleges know their own processes and needs better than legislators do. If their solutions are too weak, it will then be time to talk about state intervention. Another bill calls on UC and Cal State to review whether and how heavily the SAT and ACT college entrance exams should be weighed in admissions decisions. Nothing wrong with that, but both state college systems already are doing so. The most problematic of the bills in the package would prohibit all colleges and universities in the state, public or private, from giving preference to applications from the children of alumni — so-called legacy applicants — or the children of donors. Cal Grants, which provide financial aid for students from lower- to middle-income families, would not be given to students who attend schools that refuse to change those policies. There are several things wrong with this bill. First, the state schools say they don’t give preference to legacy candidates as it is. As for the private colleges, many have a long history of legacy admissions and, frankly, it’s hard to see a good reason for such policies other than to keep admissions within a privileged club. The colleges don’t appear to gain financially from the preference; the applicants have done nothing to deserve it and it keeps spots from going to more qualified candidates. But even though the system is ripe for extinction, that’s a policy change that private colleges should be making on their own and in ways that work best both for their institutions and for students. While it certainly strikes us as odious to see families buy their way into an institution of higher learning, if a donor is willing to spend millions of dollars so that the college can accept and enroll more scholarship students, there’s at least a reasonable argument to be made that the policy occasionally might do more good than harm. Plus, this bill could have negative consequences for the very students that legislators are trying to help. If private colleges decide to keep their

Alaska welcomes EPA plan on contaminated drinking water

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, and Alaska Department Transportation and Public Facilities, in partnership with the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, have been working on the identification of and response to sites contaminated with Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) chemicals. We are very pleased the United States Environmental Protection Agency has recently announced a PFAS Action Plan, which includes a commitment by the EPA to make a regulatory determination within the year about whether to establish a Maximum Contamination Level (MCL) for drinking water for the PFAS chemicals perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS). PFAS are chemicals that have been used since the 1950s in a wide range of consumer and industrial products. A PFAS-based product known as Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) puts out petroleum and chemical fires far more safely and effectively than water, leading the Federal Aviation Administration to require its use for fires and regular drills at airports around the country, including 23 state-owned airports in Alaska. Regular equipment testing is required and DOT&PF will use AFFF for responding to real fires, but foam will not be discharged into the environment unless necessary to save lives during an actual aircraft emergency. Recent studies have shown that PFAS may adversely impact human health, but the exact effects and at what levels of exposure are not fully known. This makes it difficult when PFAS are found in soil, groundwater or drinking water wells. Is any contamination harmful, or is there a level

at which we should be concerned and take action? For other regulated drinking water contaminants, the EPA has set MCLs, but they have not yet done so for PFAS. Rather than wait, the DEC and DOT&PF pressed forward to protect the health of Alaskans. The agencies undertook a risk-based review of the state-owned airports in Alaska, identifying sites where runoff of AFFF could have impacted nearby drinking water wells. To date, well users in Fairbanks, North Pole, King Salmon, Dillingham and Gustavus have been provided with alternate drinking water based on test results. States have responded in different ways to the PFAS issue, with most choosing to do nothing at all. Some, including Alaska in 2016, took regulatory action to set cleanup levels. In August 2018, DEC added three additional PFAS compounds in a technical memo to create a DEC action level, and began the process of promulgating new regulations based on this change. During the public comment period for the draft regulations, the DEC received comments across the spectrum, including comments strongly urging the department to leave the 2016 regulations in place, and postpone setting revised cleanup levels until better toxicity data and EPA standards are available. The EPA’s recent announcement that it would take the lead on this important issue is welcome news. It will bring much needed consistency as a national strategy for addressing the health risks of PFAS contamination is developed. The EPA will use its team of scientists, toxicologists and other ex-

perts to study PFAS when setting an MCL. These experts will take into account the contribution from other exposures such as those from stain resistant carpeting, water proof outwear and food wrappers, and nonstick cookware. Once an MCL is set by the EPA, states, including Alaska would be required to adopt it. Given the EPA’s forthcoming efforts, DEC has placed its draft regulations on hold. We will continue to voluntarily test according to the EPA’s Lifetime Health Advisory level of 70 parts per trillion of PFOS and PFOA when addressing contaminated sites, as these are the two most studied PFAS compounds. The DEC and DOT&PF will be proactive and continue to sample water in other communities near state-owned airports to determine whether drinking water has been impacted and to provide alternative drinking water as a precaution. The DEC will continue to require other responsible parties to test for PFAS and provide alternative drinking water as a precaution as well. We will actively participate in EPA’s process and closely monitor future toxicology and epidemiology studies on PFAS. In the meantime, both agencies have posted information about PFAS on its respective websites. We encourage those who have questions regarding PFAS and the state’s response to visit dec.alaska.gov/spar/ csp/pfas/ and dot.state.ak.us/airportwater/.

Fox draws nearly 2.6 million viewers for Sanders town hall NEW YORK (AP) — Sen. Bernie Sanders took heat from some Democrats for holding a town hall on Fox News Channel but there’s one result hard to argue with: it was the most-watched candidate event in the election campaign so far. An estimated 2.55 million people saw Sanders’ town hall Monday in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the Nielsen company said. Not only did that beat the 1.35 million people who saw Sanders on CNN on Feb. 25, the Fox telecast aired before prime time when traditionally the largest audience gathers. Sen. Kamala Harris’ CNN town hall in January was seen by 1.95 million

viewers, the previous high for a 2020 presidential contender. The Vermont senator also apparently had one prominent viewer in Washington. President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that it was “so weird to watch Crazy Bernie” on Fox News. He said Bret Baier, who co-anchored the event with Martha MacCallum, and the audience was “so smiley and nice.” Baier later tweeted his thanks to Trump for watching, and said he’d like to have the president on a town hall or for an interview on his nightly news show. “We cover all sides,” Baier said. While Trump is a frequent interview subject on Fox, he tends to avoid newsier personalities like Baier and Chris Wallace.

Later Tuesday, Trump claimed that “Many Trump Fans & Signs were outside of the @FoxNews Studio” during the Sanders event. “Big complaints about not being let in-stuffed with Bernie supporters,” the president tweeted. “What’s with @FoxNews?” During the town hall, Sanders noted the blowback he’d gotten from some Democrats for appearing on Fox and took a few shots at the network, at one point drawing a rebuke from Baier. “We are very grateful that you’re here,” Baier said. “We are giving you an hour of substance and talk on our airwaves so we can get over the Fox thing, if you’re alright with that,” he said. Fox says it is in talks with other Democrats to have town halls on the network, but hasn’t said who.

existing admissions policies, lower-income students might be unable to attend because they can’t get Cal Grants to help them financially. The Legislature shouldn’t use the financial welfare of needy students as a cudgel for social engineering. One more bill would require private college consultants, who coach students through the admissions process for what are usually

hefty fees, to register with the California secretary of state, who later would propose regulations for the industry. It’s unclear how this would prevent scandals like the current one in which a Newport Beach consultant pleaded guilty to funneling parents’ money into bribes for athletic coaches. It’s already illegal to commit fraud. College admission is a complicated and nuanced procedure,

as well as one that too often favors connected, well-heeled applicants. Legislators appear to be looking for a role to play in a big and shameful story, but if they haven’t thought through what kind of reforms are needed, they’re better off sitting this one out.

Trump says Russia probe ‘con job,’ By MICHAEL BALSAMO and JONATHAN LEMIRE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The president isn’t waiting. As Washington counts down the final hours until publication of the redacted special counsel report — now expected Thursday — Donald Trump stepped up his attacks in an effort to undermine potential disclosures on Russia, his 2016 campaign and the aftermath. He unleashed a series of tweets Monday focusing on the previously released summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions — including a crucial one on obstruction of justice that Trump again misrepresented — produced by Attorney General William Barr. “Mueller, and the A.G. based on Mueller findings (and great intelligence), have already ruled No Collusion, No Obstruction,” Trump tweeted. “These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others! INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS!” Press secretary Sarah Sanders repeatedly tried to make the same case on TV talk shows on Sunday. But the political battle is far from finished over the special counsel’s investigation

of Russian efforts to help Trump in 2016 and whether there was cooperation with his campaign. Democrats are calling for Mueller himself to testify before Congress and have expressed concern that Barr will order unnecessary censoring of the report to protect the president. The House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, is poised to try to compel Barr to turn over an unredacted copy as well as the report’s underlying investigative files. The Justice Department announced Monday that it expects to release the redacted version Thursday morning, sending the findings of the nearly two-year probe to Congress and making them available to the public. Mueller officially concluded his investigation late last month and submitted the confidential report to Barr. Two days later, the attorney general sent Congress a four-page letter that detailed Mueller’s “principal conclusions.” In his letter, Barr said the special counsel did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russia and Trump associates during the campaign. However, contrary to Trump’s false claim , Mueller did not reach a

conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. Instead, Mueller presented evidence on both sides of that question. Barr said he did not believe the evidence was sufficient to prove that Trump had obstructed justice, but he noted that Mueller’s team did not exonerate the president. Portions of the report being released by the Justice Department will be redacted to protect grand jury material, sensitive intelligence, matters that could affect ongoing investigations and damage to the privacy rights of third parties, the attorney general has said. The scores of outstanding questions about the investigation have not stopped the president and his allies from declaring victory.

They have painted House Democrats’ investigations as partisan overreach and have targeted news outlets and individual reporters they say have promoted the collusion story. The president himself seethed at a political rally that the whole thing was an attempt “to tear up the fabric of our great democracy.” He has told confidants in recent days that he was certain the full report would back up his claims of vindication but was also convinced the media would manipulate the findings in an effort to damage him, according to two Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations. In the waiting game’s final days, the White House continued to try to shape the narrative.

Minnesota cop’s trial raises questions about code of silence By AMY FORLITI Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Testimony in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home has shined a light on officers’ actions at the scene and raised questions about whether they were trying to protect one of their own. The incident commander turned her body camera off when talking to Mohamed Noor in the moments after the July 2017 shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, while other officers told him not to say a word, according to prosecutors and court testimony. Many responding officers turned their body cameras on and off at will; one had his camera recording while headed to the scene and shut it off upon arrival. “These are extremely troublesome things,” said Phil Turner, a defense attorney and former federal prosecutor in Chicago who is not connected to the case. “They’re law enforcement officers and they are supposed to enforce the law equally, whether someone is a sworn law enforcement officer or not.” Noor, 33, is on trial for murder and manslaughter in the death of Damond, a

40-year-old dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia who was shot while approaching the squad car that Noor and his partner, Officer Matthew Harrity, were in. Defense attorney Peter Wold said in his opening statement that Noor heard a loud bang on the squad car and feared an ambush. But prosecutors say there is no evidence of any threat to justify deadly force. Noor and Harrity did not turn on their body cameras until after the shooting. The shooting got instant international attention, led to the forced resignation of the city’s police chief, and led to changes in the department’s policy on body cameras. It also raised questions about a “blue wall of silence” as prosecutors said they had to convene a grand

jury to compel officers’ testimony because many refused to provide statements. Turner found this allegation troubling, saying officers around the U.S. have been covering for each other for years. He pointed to the aftermath of the 1991 police beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles. An independent commission found the code of silence among officers to be “perhaps the greatest single barrier to the effective investigation and adjudication of complaints” about police behavior. “It’s the same thing, even back then,” he said. “It’s been going on for a long time.” More recently, Chicago was rocked by claims of a cover-up in the 2014 fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. Officer

Jason Van Dyke was convicted of second-degree murder at a trial in which several officers reluctantly testified against him. A judge later acquitted three officers of staging a cover-up, dismissing as just one perspective the dashcam video of Van Dyke opening fire as McDonald walked away from police and continuing to fire after the teenager crumpled to the ground. At Noor’s trial, some officers have described arriving to a hectic, confusing situation in which they didn’t initially know Damond had been shot by an officer. Officer Jesse Lopez told Noor: “Just keep to yourself. Keep your mouth shut until you have to say anything to anybody.” Prosecutors have also raised questions about the noise that Harrity later told investigators precipitated the shooting. Harrity initially told the incident commander that the officers got spooked, prosecutor Patrick Lofton told jurors. But the first mention of a possible slap on the squad car came not from Noor or Harrity but rather from others at the scene who made assumptions about what happened, according to Lofton. The first time Harrity mentioned anything about a loud noise on the squad car was days later, when he spoke with state investigators.

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina’s legislature gave final passage Tuesday to a bill to require doctors and nurses to care for babies born alive during a failed late-term abortion or face big penalties, a measure opponents deemed legally unnecessary and a threat to abortion providers. House lawmakers followed a day after Senate counterparts in approving the bill, which would mean prison time and big fines for medical practitioners who don’t give children born despite a botched abortion the same protections as any other newborn. A spokeswoman for Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper criticized the measure last week, raising expectations he would veto the legislation. Cooper’s office did not respond Tuesday when asked whether the governor planned to veto the bill. Republicans speaking in favor of the measure said it had nothing to do with abortion. The aim was protecting an infant if a late-term abortion was botched and the baby was born breathing and with a beating heart, said Republican Rep. Pat McElraft of Carteret County. Abortion-rights lawmakers and activists strongly opposed the bill, saying state medical licensing boards and current criminal laws already punish doctors and nurses who fail to offer care to a newborn. Rather, they argue, the measure seeks to force medical actions between a physician and a pregnant woman, interfering with her right to an abortion. They added that medical providers could be charged with murder for some of the acts the bill’s supporters described. “Do any of you really think that infanticide is legal in North Carolina?” responded Democratic Rep. Susan Fisher of Buncombe County. She questioned why Republicans who have controlled the legislature for nearly a decade hadn’t acted earlier if they believed babies were being left to die or even killed after being born alive. Fisher said the measure’s real purpose was to intimidate health care providers from conducting legally allowed abortions. The legislation would impose prison time and potential $250,000 fines for medical practitioners who fail to provide sufficient care.

Marine running marathon for fallen friends crawls to finish A Marine veteran said all he was thinking about as he crawled to the finish of the Boston Marathon was the men who died after an attack on their convoy in Afghanistan nine years ago. Their names were written on his hand, his shoes and his race bib. They were the inspiration, Micah Herndon said, when he first started running to escape the horrors of war. Herndon said he never considered giving up even when his legs started giving out about 4 miles from the end of the race Monday. “That was the longest 4.2 miles I’ve ever run in my life,” said Herndon, who’s from Tallmadge, Ohio. He said his military training kicked in when he dropped to his hands and knees and crawled, at times pulling himself on his stomach, for the final 100 yards. “It was kind of second nature,” he said Tuesday, a day after finishing his third marathon. “They instil ‘adapt and overcome.’ Any situation you’re in, that’s what you do.” During the marathon, Herndon, 31, said he repeated the names of three men — Marines Mark Juarez and Matthew Ballard and British journalist Rupert Hamer — mile after mile. Juarez and Hamer were killed when a roadside bomb exploded in January 2010. Ballard, who was severely injured, died after returning home. Herndon was in that convoy, but his vehicle wasn’t hit. Repeating their names is something Herndon does when he’s training or competing in a race, even when he gets strange looks from other runners. Herndon, who was injured in another blast in 2010, got into running after coming home as a way to deal with post-traumatic stress. He hopes he can inspire other veterans. “It’s hard to reintegrate into society and be a civilian,” he said. “My message to other veterans is to find whatever your release is. My release happens to be running.” — The Associated Press

Macron wants Notre Dame rebuilt within 5 years By SAMUEL PETREQUIN and THOMAS ADAMSON Associated Press

PARIS — The inferno that raged through Notre Dame Cathedral for more than 12 hours destroyed its spire and its roof but spared its twin medieval bell towers, and a frantic rescue effort saved the monument’s “most precious treasures,” including the relic revered as Jesus’ Crown of Thorns, officials said Tuesday. French President Emmanuel Macron pledged to rebuild the beloved Roman Catholic architectural landmark, and wanted to see it completed within five years. “We have so much to rebuild,” Macron said in a televised address to the nation. “We will rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral even more beautifully. We can do it, and once again, we will mobilize (to do so).” Authorities consider the fire an accident, possibly as a result of restoration work at the global architectural treasure that survived almost 900 years of tumultuous French history but was devastated in the blaze on the second day of Holy Week.

Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz said the inquiry into the fire would be “long and complex.” Fifty investigators were working on it and would interview workers from five companies hired for the renovations to the cathedral’s roof, where the flames first broke out. Heitz said an initial fire alert was sounded at 6:20 p.m. Monday but no fire was found. The second alert was sounded at 6:43 p.m., and the blaze was discovered on the roof. Investigators have already questioned nearly 30 people, said a Paris judicial police official, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to comment on an ongoing probe. “Notre Dame has survived the revolutionary history of France, and this happened during building works,” said influential former Culture Minister Jack Lang. News that the fire was probably accidental has done nothing to ease the national mourning for the symbol of national pride. Hundreds of people gathered for a vigil prayer across the Seine from the

Also saved was the tunic of St. Louis, a long, shirt-like garment from the 13th century, said Culture Minister Franck Riester. The cathedral’s famous 18th century organ that boasts more than 8,000 pipes also survived. “The works of art, the most precious treasures were secured last night,” Riester told reporters, thanking teams from city hall, the culture ministry, firefighters and the bishopric who worked to save the items.

First Red Cross aid distributed in crisis-torn Venezuela

CARACAS, Venezuela — Red Cross volunteers distributed the first shipment of badly needed emergency supplies in Venezuela on Tuesday after months of feuding between the government, which has denied the existence of a humanitarian crisis, and opponents who have been seeking to use the delivery of aid to force President Nicolás Maduro from power. In the working class neighborhood of Catia near

downtown Caracas, government supporters fired a half dozen gunshots in the air as a van arrived to distribute water purification tablets and empty plastic jugs, creating a small commotion on a major avenue during rush hour. “We’re very happy,” Sergio Guerra, a motorcycle taxi driver, said nonchalantly as the sound of the shots cracked overhead. “With these tablets we can defend ourselves a little better by drinking cleaner water.” A small contingent of police showed up to re-

store order, and volunteers in blue vests agreed to close the van doors from which they were running the slow-moving distribution operation. Elsewhere, trucks carrying the aid snaked through a Caracas highway, the drivers of several vehicles jubilantly honking in support. The delivery of international humanitarian aid has become a focal point in Venezuela’s power struggle, now in its third month, after opposition leader Juan Guaidó declared himself interim president. Both the opposition and the government have been accused of politicizing the aid issue as hospitals struggle to provide even basic care. Guaidó has rallied the international community and amassed several hundred tons of aid, primarily from the United States, at Venezuela’s borders with Colombia, Brazil and the Dutch Caribbean. But Maduro has steadfastly refused to allow it in, blocking opposition activists who in February organized a caravan to deliver the shipments.

“We aren’t beggars,” Maduro said at the time. On Tuesday evening, Maduro sought to claim credit for the arrival of the first batch of Red Cross aid, saying on national television that his government coordinated it in line with “international protocols.” As large crowds have taken to the streets to protest his rule this year, Maduro has been pressed to address the nation’s shortages of essential goods like food and medicine. He’s selectively chosen to accept aid from allies like China, framing it as a necessary measure to confront U.S. economic sanctions. The delivery of any aid is tacit recognition that his country is in a humanitarian crisis, a notion he has long dismissed as opposition propaganda to pave the way for a foreign military intervention.

ISTANBUL — Turkey’s ruling party on Tuesday asked that a recent municipal election it lost in Istanbul be invalidated, as partial vote recounts in the city and the fight for the country’s commercial hub continued. The Justice and Development Party, or AKP, filed its “extraordinary objection” to the March 31 election results for Istanbul metropolitan mayor with Turkey’s electoral board. Citing alleged irregularities, the party previously pushed for a recount of votes, and that process is still underway in one Istanbul district. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AKP and its nationalist ally won a majority of local election votes across Turkey but lost in the capital, Ankara. In Istanbul, unofficial contested results give the main opposition party’s mayoral candidate, Ekrem Imamoglu, a 13,827-vote lead over AKP candidate Binali Yildirim. That difference has dropped from some 25,000 votes with the partial recount.

New head of Algerian constitutional council named ALGIERS, Algeria — Interim President Abdelkader Bensalah appointed a new head of Algeria’s constitutional Council late Tuesday after the former chief quit under pressure from protesters. A statement from the presidency said Kamel Feniche would be the new council president, replacing Tayeb Belaiz, who the state news agency APS earlier reported had submitted his resignation to Bensalah. Feniche, a magistrate, has been a member of the council since 2016. Belaiz is one of three figures in the interim government whose removal has been demanded by prodemocracy protesters. They are seen as part of the discredited regime of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who resigned April 2 after six weeks of nationwide demonstrations calling for an end to his two-decade rule. Belaiz’s departure could help calm protesters by clearing the way for someone considered more independent. Also Tuesday, the military chief called on Algerians to show “patience” during the political transition ahead. A presidential election has been set for July 4 to choose the successor to Bouteflika, who stepped down under pressure from the military’s chief of staff, Gen. Ahmed Gaid Salah.

Mexican city bars caravan, says migrants are safety threat MEXICO CITY — Municipal authorities in Mexico’s southern state of Chiapas tried to block a caravan of about 2,000 Central American migrants from entering the town of Huixtla. The Huixtla government declared an emergency Monday night and told stores to close when the migrants streamed in anyway. Members of the caravan pushed past police and headed for the town center, although officials wanted them to stay at an improvised shelter farther away. The municipality said in a taped statement that “the majority of the people coming are not coming peacefully, as we might have hoped.” Officials also told townspeople to stay indoors, warning that the migrants were a threat to safety. The town’s cold reception contrasts with the warm welcome it gave to caravans just last year. — The Associated Press

About Ben’s boat and clam digging Bobs Birthday today, April 17, 2019 I want to wish Bob a very Happy Birthday today! He continues to work at M&M as a meat cutter at 78 years young. We have lived here in one place that the house that Bob Built for 31 years. He has added a sewing/ computer room separate from the house for me. And added a Caveshop for his tools and a TV. We seem to have survived this winter again. The mud and muck is just as bad or worse than last year at this time. Bob has hauled in many, many loads of gravel in here with his pickup after a full eight hours of carpenter work at Unocal in earlier years, because we could not afford a big load of gravel hauled in by dump truck. Every year it disappeared and he would once again fill his pickup with gravel on his way home from work and spread it over the mud. He did this for years! It was a daily chore after work and he never complained! Then we would both grab a rake and rake it into the pot holes and “pud muddles.” Well, it has not changed — I hesitate to guess how many tons of gravel has been hauled in here — both by Bob and by big dump trucks. YES, we have TYPARmat on the top of the volcanic dirt-dust that seems to be on this side of the lake. The gravel shows up after all the water and mud disappears and then we have wonderful green grass, weeds and flowers poking up, smiling at the sun. I seem to forget every year that it really had not changed much See ANNIE, page A8

We made a deeply flavorful chicken tagine-in about an hour By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

We love the way the liberal warm spices, sweetness, and tart brininess of a tagine enliven workaday chicken, so we set to develop a chicken tagine with depth of flavour—in about an hour. We followed our standard for braised chicken recipes: We browned the skin-on chicken pieces to give the braising liquid deep flavour, removed the chicken from the pot and sauteed the aromatics (onion, garlic, and lemon zest strips) along with a blend of spices (paprika, cumin, cayenne, ginger, coriander, and cinnamon), and added chicken broth for braising and honey for sweetness. With the flavourful base built, we returned the chicken to the pot, starting the longer-cooking thighs and drumsticks before the breasts. Along with green olives, we finished and brightened the dish with a mixture of minced lemon zest strips and garlic, lemon juice, and fresh cilantro. For best results, use four chicken thighs and two chicken breasts, each breast split in half the dark meat contributes valuable flavour to the broth and should not be omitted. Make sure to trim any white pith from the zest, as it can impart bitter flavour. If the olives are particularly salty, give them a rinse.

CHICKEN TAGINE WITH OLIVES AND LEMON Servings: 4 Start to finish: 45 minutes 1 1/4 teaspoons paprika 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3 (2-inch) strips lemon zest plus 3 tablespoons juice 5 garlic cloves, minced 4 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces, trimmed Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil 1 large onion, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick 1 3/4 cups chicken broth 1 tablespoon honey 2 carrots, peeled and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, very large pieces cut into half-moons 2 cups pitted Greek green olives, halved 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro Combine paprika, cumin, ginger, cayenne, coriander, and cinnamon in small bowl set aside. Mince 1 lemon zest strip and combine with 1 teaspoon garlic mince together until reduced to fine paste and set aside.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in Dutch oven over mediumhigh heat until just smoking. Add chicken, skin side down, and cook until well browned, about 5 minutes. Using tongs, flip chicken and brown second side, about 4 minutes longer transfer to large plate. When cool enough to handle, discard skin. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from pot. Add onion and remaining 2 lemon zest strips to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion slices have browned at edges but still retain their shape, 5 to 7 minutes (add 1 tablespoon water as needed if pot begins to scorch). Add

remaining garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add reserved spice mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until darkened and very fragrant, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Stir in broth and honey, scraping up any browned bits. Add drumsticks and thighs, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add carrots to pot, then arrange breast pieces in single layer on top of carrots. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until breast pieces register 160 F and drumsticks/ thighs register 175 F, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to plate and tent with alu-

minum foil. Add olives to pot increase heat to medium-high and simmer until liquid has thickened slightly and carrots are tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Return chicken to pot and stir in cilantro, lemon juice, and reserved garlic mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 877 calories 536 calories from fat 60 g fat (11 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 251 mg cholesterol 2118 mg sodium 24 g carbohydrate 3 g fiber 7 g sugar 58 g protein.

GRILLED ARGENTINE STEAKS WITH CHIMICHURRI SAUCE

This shows Argentine Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce in Brookline, Mass. (Carl Tremblay/America’s Test Kitchen via AP) By America’s Test Kitchen THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A fresh, herb-packed chimichurri sauce complementing rich, smoky grilled steaks is an Argentine fa-

vourite. We think it’s a perfect meal for summer evenings outside with friends and family. To translate the Argentine grilling method to our smaller American steaks,

we rubbed the boneless strip steaks with salt and used the freezer as a dehydrator to evaporate the surface moisture this, along with rubbing the steaks with cornstarch, helped them de-

Servings: 6-8 Start to finish: 1 hour 30 minutes (plus 30 minutes salting time) Chimichurri Sauce: 1/4 cup hot water 2 teaspoons dried oregano 1 teaspoon salt 1 1/3 cups fresh parsley leaves 2/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves 6 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil Steaks: 1 tablespoon cornstarch Salt and pepper 4 (1 pound) boneless strip steaks, 1 1/2 inches thick, trimmed 4 medium wood chunks, unsoaked 1 (9 inch) disposable aluminum pie plate (if using gas) For the chimichurri sauce: Combine water,

oregano, and salt in small bowl and let sit until oregano is softened, about 15 minutes. Pulse parsley, cilantro, garlic, and pepper flakes in food processor until coarsely chopped, about 10 pulses. Add water mixture and vinegar and pulse to combine. Transfer mixture to bowl and slowly whisk in oil until combined. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour. (Chimichurri sauce can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.) For the steaks: Meanwhile, combine cornstarch and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in bowl. Pat steaks dry with paper towels and place on wire rack set in rimmed baking sheet. Rub entire surface of steaks with cornstarch mixture and place steaks in freezer, uncovered, until very firm, about 30 minutes. — For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent halfway. Light large chimney starter filled with charcoal briquettes (6 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour evenly over grill. Using tongs, place wood chunks directly on top of coals, spacing them evenly around perimeter of grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover, and open lid vent halfway. Heat grill until hot and wood

chunks are smoking, about 5 minutes. — For a gas grill: Turn all burners to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Leave all burners on high. Place wood chunks in disposable aluminum pie plate and set on cooking grate. Close lid and heat until wood chunks begin to smoke, about 5 minutes. Clean and oil cooking grate. Season steaks with pepper. Place steaks on grill, cover, and cook until beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Flip steaks and cook, uncovered, until well browned on first side, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip steaks and continue to cook until meat registers 115-120 F (for rare) or 120-125 F (for medium-rare), 2 to 6 minutes longer. Transfer steaks to carving board, tent with aluminum foil, and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Slice each steak 1/4 inch thick. Serve, passing chimichurri sauce separately. ——— Nutrition information per serving: 405 calories 182 calories from fat 20 g fat (4 g saturated 0 g trans fats) 125 mg cholesterol 423 mg sodium 3 g carbohydrate 1 g fiber 0 g sugar 53 g protein.


A8 | Wednesday, April 17, 2019 | Peninsula Clarion from last year — and years before. The only difference is we had tons of snow and I was sure we would have snowbanks behind the house until August. Since we have had warm rain and lots of sun it has melted most of it. I am grateful! Spring is here, even though we will have mud in the yard for another two weeks. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOB AND HAPPY SPRING, EVERYONE. 1971, Homer: Chapter one Clam digging is coming up soon, so this story is reminiscent of our clam digging days. “Hey ya’ all. This is Ben. You guys wanna’ go clam diggin’ in Homer tomorrow?” “Sure, we will meet you at Eagle River.” I was married to Richard Berg and we lived in Eagle River. We piled our clam digging stuff in our motor home and met Ben and Nadene. They were pulling Ben’s flat-bottom river boat with the big old, old yellow school bus, equipped with the necessary comforts of living away from home. Ben made aluminum flat-bottom river boats and sold them. They were wonderful and roomy with inboard jet motors. We made several stops on our way to Homer, just goofing off. It was late when we got to Homer and we parked, as you could do in those days, on the beach across from the Salty Dog Saloon on the Homer Spit. We made plans that night for clam digging across the bay, around a big campfire, telling stories until the wee hours. Next morning, not so early, we launched the river boat from the marina on the other side of the Salty Dog. It was a glorious warm day, glassy water, not a breeze. We reached the area we had planned to dig clams. We dug and we dug. We stopped and had a picnic. Ben’s idea of a picnic was “what-bread” two pieces of “blonee” and big thick slice of onion with lots of “man-naice.” Then we dug and dug some more. We had only three buckets with us, and in those days we were allowed 60 razor clams each. I think there was no limit on the butter clams or any type of other clams or muscles. We hit the jackpot and each got our limit of razor clams, plus a big variety of other clams. We did not have a place to put all the clams, so Ben turned the cover of the inboard motor over and made a big holding area for all the clams. One side of the cover was open. We piled them in, heaping them to the back side of the cover behind the two back seats. Time came to head home. We were tired and sun burnt and hungry for a big clam feed around another big campfire on the beach next to the water where the yellow bus was parked. We made our way across the beautiful glassy water, singing songs and enjoying every bit of what was left of the day. Coming across the water, Ben in all his “wisdom” spotted his old yellow bus. He decided he could beach the boat on the beach close to the bus, instead of at the marina, and then we would not have to carry all those clams up the steep steps of the marina and across the parking lots, across the Spit road, to the old yellow bus. He pushed the throttle into full forward and we took off faster and faster. He thinks he can land the boat right down from the yellow bus. Richard, “in all his wisdom,” sees what Ben is about to do, puts his arm across me and tells, me: “Brace yourself and HANG on!” Nadene in the front next to Ben was saying, “Whee-Whee!” She loved to go fast in anything! We hit the beach at full throttle and we STOPPED! No sliding, no gliding. We stopped like a huge suction cup was attached to the bottom of the boat. We were forced forward, and ended up hanging over the tops of the front seat. My husband had his arms over Ben’s shoulders and my hands were in the seat where Nadene WAS! She had been shoved under the dashboard in the bow of the boat and was sitting cross legged and stooped over, peeking out, wondering what in the world happened. Just as fast as we hit the beach, we started getting pelted with clams, gunk from the inlet water, mud and sand that was in the bottom of the motor cover. It was raining clams!! We pushed ourselves back into our seats. Nadene crawled out from under her little home under the dash board and Ben, with the steering wheel in his hand, turned, steering wheel STILL in his hands, it had broken off, yelled, “Is anyone hurt? Is anyone hurt?” He did not fully comprehend that he was turning around and looking to see if anyone was hurt with the steering wheel still held in a driving position. Nadene crawling back up on the seat full of clam gunk, muddy water and bits and pieces of clam shells hanging off her. She turned and attacked Ben with her open hand, creaming in her Texas accent. “Lookee! LOOKee wat’ ya’ don! Ben! Lookee lookee!” She kept beating on him. We all looked at each other, Ben still with his broken steering wheel in his hands, gunk dripping off everyone, and we started to laugh. We laughed uncontrollably! We laughed so hard that Nadene stopped beating on Ben and seeing the humor, pointing at us and started laughing. Ben was still in total shock still had a death grip on the steering wheel. TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK.

GRANNIE ANNIE’S EASTER BUNNY BREAD PUDDING This is a combination of several bread pudding recipes. I hope everyone has a Happy Easter. 1 1/2 large loaves of white day old bread, slightly dry and cut in 1-inch cubes 2 cans evaporated milk 2 cups regular milk 1 cup packed brown sugar 4 eggs slightly beat into the milk and sugar 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 tablespoon vanilla 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) In a large bowl that you can pour out of, mix milk, eggs, salt, sugar, spices and vanilla. Stir, until well mixed, into the milk. Place cubed bread and greased or buttered lasagna pan. It needs to be deep and large. Sprinkle with raisins (and nuts). Gradually pour milk mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate at least 5 to 6 hours and preferably overnight. Uncover and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Put in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for at least 1 hour — it may be 1 1/2 hours — until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cover bread pudding after 1 hour to continue baking serve with the following sauce.

LEMON HARD SAUCE 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1/4 teaspoon of salt A pinch of nutmeg bag 2 cups of boiling water 4 tablespoons of butter 3 tablespoons lemon juice Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt and nutmeg. Gradually add water and cook stirring constantly until thickened and clear. Add butter and lemon juice and blend thoroughly after taking off the heat. Serve warm over bread pudding. Note: My Mom made wonderful bread pudding out of homemade bread, of course. We always poured thick cream over ours and a spoon of sugar on top. It was always good hot, but it certainly was very good cold. Another note: Fry leftover sliced bread pudding in a small amount of butter for breakfast. Serve with maple syrup or the hard sauce. Get fancy and top with whipped cream.

I wish I could count the times I have used this recipe when the kids were little in Colorado and while they were growing up in Alaska. I used moose burger. Never gets old. It’s always good. 1 pound lean hamburger, or, if you’re lucky enough to have it, moose burger 2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms or a can of sliced mushrooms, drained 1 medium onion chopped 1 stalk celery finely chopped 2 tablespoons of flour 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules, optional 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard 1/8 teaspoon pepper 1/2 cup sour cream, or buttermilk or plain yogurt or 1 can mushroom soup. 2 teaspoons parsley 8 ounces of cooked noodles or screwdooles or mashed potatoes Cook beef or moose until done. Drain if necessary. Add mushrooms, onions and celery. Stir in flour, bouillon, salt, mustard, pepper and 1 cup of water. You may have to add a small amount of additional water. Cook until thick about 2 min. Stir in sour cream or buttermilk or one can of mushroom soup. (Add 1/2 can milk if using soup). Bring back to hot temperature but DO NOT BOIL!. Serve on noodles or mashed potatoes. My kids loved this on mashed potatoes. To expand this recipe I use both the sour cream and the mushroom soup, 1/4 cup milk and mix into the meat. Good with corn or green beans.

Brown rice can be difficult to cook well: All too often, it is underseasoned and turns starchy and mushy. Plus, it takes a long time to cook, so stovetop recipes run the risk of scorching on the bottom. While rice cookers can turn out perfect rice every time, most American home cooks don’t own one, so we hoped to use our Dutch oven and a moderate oven to approximate the controlled, indirect heat of these specialty appliances. The thick, heavy castiron pot and enveloping heat of the oven promoted even cooking and eliminated scorching. A bit of sauteed onion offered an aromatic flavour boost as the rice cooked, and incorporating chicken broth into the cooking liquid provided savory notes. We decided to brighten up the brown rice’s nutty flavour by adding frozen peas (we didn’t need to cook them simply adding them to the pot while the rice rested was enough to warm them through) along with some fresh mint, lemon zest, and feta.

BROWN RICE PILAF WITH PEAS, FETA AND MINT Servings: 4-6 Start to finish: 1 hour, 45 minutes 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, chopped fine 1 cup chicken broth 2 1/4 cups water 1 1/2 cups long-grain brown rice 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup frozen peas, thawed 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup) Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 F. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and well browned, 12 to 14 minutes. Stir in broth and water and bring to boil. Off heat, stir in rice and salt. Cover, transfer pot to oven, and bake until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 65 to 70 minutes. Remove pot from oven and sprinkle peas over

Melt 1/3 cup of butter, add 1 1/2 cups graham crackers & 2 Tbs. sugar. Mix. Line 8 inch pan. (Do not use store-bought crust) Beat until smooth: One 8 oz. package of cream cheese. Add: 2 beaten eggs (it’s important to beat eggs first before mixing), 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla & juice of 1/2 a lemon. Beat smooth. Pour on crust. Bake @ 350 degrees, 20-25 minutes. Mix: 1/2 pint sour cream, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 4 tbs. sugar. Pour over cool cake & bake @ 475 degrees for 5 minutes. ENJOY!

One is the oven, the best way to cook bacon for a crowd. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 400 F. Line rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange strips of bacon (as much as 1 pound) on foil (slices can overlap slightly). Place baking sheet in oven and bake until bacon is browned and crispy, 10 to 15 minutes. Baking sheet (and grease) will be very hot! Carefully transfer bacon to plate lined with paper towels to drain. Then there’s the stovetop: Place 4 strips of bacon in 12-inch skillet (regular or nonstick) and add 1/2 cup water. Turn heat to high. When water comes to boil, reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to mediumlow and keep cooking until bacon is crispy and golden brown on first side, about 2 minutes. Use tongs to flip bacon and cook until crispy and golden brown on second side, about 2 minutes.

A8 | Wednesday, April 17, 2019 | Peninsula Clarion from last year — and years before. The only difference is we had tons of snow and I was sure we would have snowbanks behind the house until August. Since we have had warm rain and lots of sun it has melted most of it. I am grateful! Spring is here, even though we will have mud in the yard for another two weeks. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOB AND HAPPY SPRING, EVERYONE. 1971, Homer: Chapter one Clam digging is coming up soon, so this story is reminiscent of our clam digging days. “Hey ya’ all. This is Ben. You guys wanna’ go clam diggin’ in Homer tomorrow?” “Sure, we will meet you at Eagle River.” I was married to Richard Berg and we lived in Eagle River. We piled our clam digging stuff in our motor home and met Ben and Nadene. They were pulling Ben’s flat-bottom river boat with the big old, old yellow school bus, equipped with the necessary comforts of living away from home. Ben made aluminum flat-bottom river boats and sold them. They were wonderful and roomy with inboard jet motors. We made several stops on our way to Homer, just goofing off. It was late when we got to Homer and we parked, as you could do in those days, on the beach across from the Salty Dog Saloon on the Homer Spit. We made plans that night for clam digging across the bay, around a big campfire, telling stories until the wee hours. Next morning, not so early, we launched the river boat from the marina on the other side of the Salty Dog. It was a glorious warm day, glassy water, not a breeze. We reached the area we had planned to dig clams. We dug and we dug. We stopped and had a picnic. Ben’s idea of a picnic was “what-bread” two pieces of “blonee” and big thick slice of onion with lots of “man-naice.” Then we dug and dug some more. We had only three buckets with us, and in those days we were allowed 60 razor clams each. I think there was no limit on the butter clams or any type of other clams or muscles. We hit the jackpot and each got our limit of razor clams, plus a big variety of other clams. We did not have a place to put all the clams, so Ben turned the cover of the inboard motor over and made a big holding area for all the clams. One side of the cover was open.

Ties all around

Homer, Kenai all square for girls, boys By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion

Score a win for the wind. The host Kenai Central and Homer girls played to a scoreless tie Tuesday in Peninsula Conference action. As it often does this time of year at Ed Hollier Field, a cold wind streamed across the pitch, making the ball hard to settle, especially on the fast surface of artificial turf. “The wind, of course, is always a factor,” said Kenai coach Dan Verkuilen. The Mariners are now 3-0-2 overall and 1-0-2 in the league, while the Kardinals are 2-1-1 overall and 1-0-1 in the league. “It was a weird game,” Homer coach Mike Tozzo said. “There was lots of kicking. The wind was definitely a factor.” Homer has now tied traditional conference powerhouses Soldotna and Kenai early in the season, signaling more tight competition to come. “That’s what you want — more competition,” Verkuilen said. “We just don’t want to show up and make it to state every year.” Of the two coaches, Verkuilen was happier with his team’s play. The Kardinals were able to take 10 shots, putting eight on frame. In a 2-1 victory over

North Pole on Saturday, the Kards had 24 shots and put 12 on frame, with two finding the back of the net. “We’re making gradual progress and that’s what we talk about,” Verkuilen said. “We had better shot placement, inside-outside passing and communication.” Both teams would have had to be extra precise to score because Homer goalie Ali McCarron and Kenai goalie Kailey Hamilton were alert in picking up any stray balls in the box. “Both goalies are probably two of the best goalies in the state,” Verkuilen said. “You have to be good to get it past either of them.” Tozzo said his team had trouble mounting much of an attack while Kenai was

Gibson, Wood run Boston Staff report Peninsula Clarion

Derek Gibson of Soldotna and Bill Wood of Kenai represented the Kenai Peninsula on Monday at the Boston Marathon. Gibson, 26, crossed at 2 hours, 57 minutes and 39 seconds to become the fifth Alaskan to cross the tape. Gibson was 2,093rd overall, 1,963rd among men and 1,515th in his age group. Wood, 56, finished at 3:51:19. He was 14,810th overall, 9,505th among men and 759th in his age division.

Kodiak softball sweeps Kenai Staff report Peninsula Clarion

The Kenai Central softball team dropped a pair of Northern Lights Conference games Monday in Kodiak. The Kardinals (0-2 in the NLC, 0-3 overall) were shut out in the first game and the mercy rule was enacted after three innings. The Kardinals lost 14-2 in four innings in the second game in another game shortened by the run rule. In the first game, John Manley said the Kards didn’t hit well. Pitchers Kaylee Lauritsen and Lexi Reis had some walks, but Manley added that Kodiak hit very well. Lauritsen had a sore arm, so Reis pitched the second game. “The second game was better,” Manley said. “As the game went on, she cut down on walks and we hit a little better.” Zaharah Wilshusen and Nani Rapoza scored in the second game, while Nereid Phillips got the RBIs. Manley said Taylor Carver also had a nice hit. On defense, Manley said Wilshusen was solid at short, while outfielders Andie Galloway in left, Amber Nash in right and Lauritsen in center all had nice catches. “This was a step forward on improvement,” Manley said. “We have a lot of younger players and they’ll keep improving as we go along.”

Wilson signs with Seattle RENTON, Wash. (AP) — With one 15-second video clip, Russell Wilson put to rest any questions about his long-term future. “Seattle, we have a deal,” Wilson said in the video early Tuesday morning. Wilson’s $140 million, four-year extension puts him at the top of the NFL salary food chain for now. He has the highest yearly average salary at $35 million per season. He has the highest signing bonus ($65 million) and guaranteed money ($107 million) in league history.

able to break through with some chances on his defense. In the 25th minute, McCarron had to make a diving save on a shot by Damaris Severson. “Ali had a great game,” Tozzo said. “She had to work a lot and that’s not what we like to see. She saved us.” Tozzo said his team played better in the second half. Verkuilen liked the work of Olivia Brewer and Alyssa Bucho up front. Severson and Alissa Maw put up stout resistance on defense, while Bethany Morris distributed the ball well. Homer boys 1, Kenai 1 See TIE, page A10

Soldotna soccer gets sweep of Nikiski By JOEY KLECKA Peninsula Clarion

The Nikiski soccer teams seem to think they can run with the big dogs this year. And so far, they’re showing it too. The Nikiski boys took a 1-0 lead into halftime Tuesday night at Soldotna but the Stars came back with four second-half goals en route to a 4-1 win in Peninsula Conference play. In the girls game, SoHi found the net twice in the first half to secure a 2-0 win over Nikiski. For a smaller program accustomed to more lopsided scores against peninsula powerhouses like Kenai Central and Soldotna, the Bulldogs (0-2 in conference, 0-2 overall) have shown a remarkable ability to stay in games in this young season. “For the first time in a long time, I’m predicting for the boys that we have an opportunity to make it to state,” said Nikiski head coach Harrison Deveer. “I see Soldotna as being the best team in our region, and we were able to compete with them. It’s huge improvement from last year. I talked about forfeiting games with Soldotna last year.” Last Thursday, Nikiski lost 4-1 to Kenai but held a 1-1 tie at halftime against the defending Division II state champions. “That’s exactly what I want to see,” Deveer said. “I’m happy, this is actually probably one of the worst losses we’ve had so far. I thought we had it, I was pretty sure we had this game. It could’ve easily been our way.” For Soldotna (2-0 in conference, 3-2 overall), the second half saw the Stars come back rejuvenated and refocused to secure the win, but head coach David Holmes was still left scratching his head after another Jekyll-and-Hyde

game. “It’s like we have two different teams,” Holmes said. “A first-half team and a second-half team. If they get down early, it’s just an uphill battle. “I’m hoping this is a trend we can break quickly.” The Bulldogs broke through 15 minutes into the first half on a through ball to Brazilian transplant Pedro Souza, who broke away for a one-on-one with SoHi goalkeeper Hunter Woodward and won the battle to slot home the opening goal of the game. With a stiff wind and a low sun at their backs, the Bulldogs thrived in the first 40 minutes, but Deveer knew they’d be facing an uphill battle in the second. “We were playing really good on the defensive end and I thought our defense was going to be able to hold it,” Deveer said. “But Soldotna has some really good players that can shoot on goal and they took advantage of that.” Soldotna’s breakthrough came 11 minutes into the

Today in History Today is Wednesday, April 17, the 107th day of 2019. There are 258 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 17, 1972, the Boston Marathon allowed women to compete for the first time; Nina Kuscsik was the first officially recognized women’s champion, with a time of 3:10:26. On this date: In 1492, a contract was signed by Christopher Columbus and a representative of Spain’s King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, giving Columbus a commission to seek a westward ocean passage to Asia. In 1521, Martin Luther went before the Diet of Worms (vohrms) to face charges stemming from his religious writings. (Luther was later declared an outlaw by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.) In 1861, the Virginia State Convention voted to secede from the Union. In 1924, the motion picture studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer was founded, the result of a merger of Metro Pictures, Goldwyn Pictures and the Louis B. Mayer Co. In 1961, some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in an attempt to topple Fidel Castro, whose forces crushed the incursion by the third day. In 1964, Geraldine “Jerrie” Mock became the first woman to complete a solo airplane trip around the world as she returned to Columbus, Ohio, after 29 1/2 days in her Cessna 180. Ford Motor Co. unveiled the Mustang at the New York World’s Fair. The first game was played at New York’s Shea Stadium; the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Mets, 4-3. In 1969, a jury in Los Angeles convicted Sirhan Sirhan of assassinating Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. In 1970, Apollo 13 astronauts James A. Lovell, Fred W. Haise and Jack Swigert splashed down safely in the Pacific, four days after a ruptured oxygen tank crippled their spacecraft while en route to the moon. In 1973, Federal Express (later FedEx) began operations as 14 planes carrying 186 packages took off from Memphis International Airport, bound for 25 U.S. cities. In 1986, at London’s Heathrow Airport, a bomb was discovered in the bag of Anne-Marie Murphy, a pregnant Irishwoman about to board an El Al jetliner to Israel; she’d been tricked into carrying the bomb by her Jordanian fiance, Nezar Hindawi. The bodies of kidnapped American Peter Kilburn and Britons Philip Padfield and Leigh Douglas were found near Beirut; they had been slain in apparent retaliation for the U.S. raid on Libya. In 1991, the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 3,000 for the first time, ending the day at 3,004.46, up 17.58. In 1993, a federal jury in Los Angeles convicted two former police officers of violating the civil rights of beaten motorist Rodney King; two other officers were acquitted. Turkish President Turgut Ozal died at age 66. Ten years ago: A day after U.N. inspectors left North Korea, U.S. experts monitoring the communist country’s nuclear program also departed after Pyongyang expelled them and threatened to restart its reactor in anger over U.N. criticism of its recent rocket launch. Richard Phillips, the cargo ship captain rescued by Navy snipers from the clutches of Somali pirates, made a triumphant return to his home state of Vermont, insisting, “I’m not a hero, the military is.” Five years ago: Ukraine and Russia agreed on a tentative halt to violence and to calm tensions along their shared border after more than a month of Cold-War style military posturing triggered by Moscow’s annexation of Crimea. Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, 87, died in Mexico City. One year ago: Barbara Bush, who was both a first lady and the mother of a president, died in Houston at the age of 92; she was survived by her husband, George H.W. Bush, with whom she had the longest marriage of any presidential couple in American history - a marriage of more than 73 years. A Southwest Airlines jet made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after the jet apparently blew an engine, got hit by debris and lost a window; a woman sitting near the window was pulled partially out of the plane and later died. Americans were given an extra day to file their taxes after key elements of the IRS website crashed on deadline day. Today’s Birthdays: Actor David Bradley is 77.

second half when a Nikiski player was called for a handball in the goal box, setting up a penalty kick. Junior Alex Montague delivered the game-tying strike by Nikiski goalie Michael Eiter to knot things up. Deveer said that was all that SoHi needed. “I think the PK definitely got in the heads of our players,” Deveer said. “(SoHi) tying the game definitely affected us emotionally.” Montague made it count in the 64th minute by intercepting a pass intended for the Nikiski defense and deftly dribbling back and launching a shot by Eiter for a 2-1 Stars lead. Kaleb Swank put SoHi ahead 3-1 in the 72nd minute by cutting through the Bulldogs defense for a strike to the right corner of the net. Josh Heiber capped the four-goal second half with two minutes to go to seal the win.

against North Pole and Nikiski. “She’s on fire lately,” said Soldotna head coach Jimmy Love. “That’s something you’d like to see, and then everybody is like, feed her the ball, feed her the ball. “When you’ve got a hot foot, take advantage of it.” Soldotna moved to 1-01 in conference and 2-11 overall, while Nikiski dropped to 0-2 in conference and overall, but Nikiski head coach Linda Zimmerman said she left satisfied with how close the Bulldogs competed with the defending Peninsula Conference champi-

ons. Zimmerman said she worked some of the Nikiski JV players up this week and was happy how the team responded after the early goals. “I think the girls got a little tired, but I think they knew the wind was in our favor the second half,” Zimmerman said. “They tried to give our (midfielders) a breather. I just wish our forwards and midfielders could’ve made something happen. It just didn’t happen.” SoHi built a quick lead with Leaf out front, starting with a corner kick in the 13th minute. Ryann

Cannava delivered the kick and Leaf got her head on it to put it in net for a 1-0 SoHi lead. It was just two minutes later that Leaf let her feet do the talking with another goal with help from Cannava and Sierra Kuntz. From there, SoHi was shut out for over an hour of game time against the Bulldogs, with much of that coming against the wind and sun, but Love said there are still tweaks to be made. “We need to look better on the field, and we just did not do that,” Love said. “But at the end of the day, it’s a win.”

and Kenai ended a highpaced struggle in a tie Tuesday night on the Mariners Continued from page A1 home field. The Mariners are 3-1The boys from Homer 1 overall and 1-1-1 in the

Peninsula Conference. The Kardinals move to 2-2-1 overall and 1-0-1 in the conference. Kenai’s lone goal came about 24 minutes into the first half from sophomore Leif Lofquist. Homer’s answering goal came early in the second half from junior Daniel Reutov on an assist from sophomore Phinny Weston, who played his first game of the season Tuesday night. Senior Ethan Pitzman also played for the first time, coach Warren Waldorf said, having only returned to town the night before. Homer took several shots in the second half, but couldn’t get more than one past keeper Braedon Pitsch. “Did you see that goalkeeper down there?” Waldorf said. “He was huge. … He had a couple of nice saves.” “(Kenai) had a good back line, you know, and they just kept knocking it out of there,” he continued. “It was tough to find a way

through.” Waldorf commended his team for fighting back from being one down, especially after he made an adjustment early in the second half, causing the Mariners to play a completely different system. “We took advantage of the sun and the wind at our back in the second half, and that was a beautiful goal that they scored,” he said. Waldorf also acknowledged that his team held off Kenai’s offense while operating with one less player on the back line. The Mariners are headed next to three games in the Southeast, with what Waldorf said will be short rosters. He hopes to come back without any injuries. He then looks forward to resting the team a bit, which is finally complete in terms of its players.

Wife discovers digital trail left by man having affair DEAR CONFUSED: People who think an affair is a good thing for a marriage are deluding themselves. An affair only adds to the problems the couple was trying to ignore. It’s time for you and your husband to make an appointment with a Abigail Van Buren licensed marriage and family therapist. Marriages can survive infidelity, but it takes time, full disclosure and hard work to rebuild trust. It will happen more quickly with professional help. If it doesn’t work, THEN may be the time to “cut your losses.” Only you can decide whether your marriage has been irretrievably broken. DEAR ABBY: I was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. I had surgery and radiation treatment, and although my recovery was slow, I am doing well now. About a year ago, a co-worker was diagnosed with breast cancer. Our other co-workers raised a large sum of money for her to be used at a spa. They have also offered her emo-

Hints from Heloise

Rubes

By Leigh Rubin

HHH Tension builds, especially around funds. You might wish that you could stretch them further. Examine your budget with care; see whether you possibly can fit in a coveted purchase. Roll with it. Extremes mark the moment for now. Before you leap, give yourself space to think. Tonight: Keep your finances in mind. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You might want to let others know where you’re coming from. As a result, you gain more support than you thought was available. First, decide what you want, be it a situation, relationship or business deal. Tonight: Living it up! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH When the situation is appropriate, take a back seat. Your ability to maneuver a personal matter could be more important than you’re aware it is. Nevertheless, honor your inner voice first right now. Tonight: Opt for a good night’s sleep. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You’re focused and know what you want and expect from certain situations. You could feel as though someone might not be in tune with you. Slow down; approach this person openly and with kindness. Eventually, you’ll develop an easier flow between the two of you. Tonight: Where your friends are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You might be focused on completing a job or project. Nothing will delay you from getting that far and achieving the results you desire. For you, more than most signs, the final product is what counts. Tonight: As you like. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Your ability to empathize and walk in someone else’s footsteps comes out. You’ll be able to find a more effective way of communicating to this person. Ask questions, but be ready for an odd answer. Tonight: Follow the music. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH One-on-one relating will draw the results you desire. You might not be sure what to expect. You can be sure that the person in question will reveal more of his or her authentic self. Even if you don’t agree with others, remain easygoing. Tonight: Make it special. BORN TODAY Actress Jennifer Garner (1972), actor William Holden (1918), businessman/ philanthropist J.P. Morgan (1837)

Stir up some leftovers Dear Heloise: Ever have a piece of chicken, a pork chop or a piece of steak left from dinner that’s not enough for another meal? I freeze the LEFTOVERS and use them later in a stir-fry. I let them thaw, cut them into bite-size pieces and mix with vegetables for a delicious meal. “Waste not ...” -- A Reader in North Carolina GRAPEFRUIT Dear Readers: The health benefits of grapefruit are enormous. It’s high in fiber and helps regulate digestive juices, and is considered a powerful antioxidant. Also, grapefruit contains a high level of vitamin C and is believed to help promote sleep. It’s low in calories, which is good for dieters, and is one of nature’s best foods. -- Heloise COOKING THE BOTTOM CRUST Dear Heloise: I read a woman was having trouble getting the bottom pie crust cooked thoroughly. Here’s what I do: I put a cast iron skillet in the oven “upside down” when I turn on the oven. Then I place the pie directly on the cast iron skillet, and I have a done crust. -- Ramona E., Lubbock, Texas APPLIANCE HINT Dear Heloise: When I bought my house a few years ago, the appliances in it were brushed aluminum. They were dull and waterstained. Wiping and washing didn’t seem to help them. Finally, I saw a video of a woman who said to put olive oil on a clean cloth and wipe them down. Afterward, wipe with a cloth dampened with vinegar. WOW! My appliances look new. This also can be used on stainless steel. -- Barbara E., Dayton, Ohio

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, April 17, 2019: This year, you break past certain set barriers. You might not be sure which approach works best, so try a variety. If single, you’re unusually desirable, but also you might tend toward bonds that are more explosive, perhaps because the attraction is greater. If you’re attached, you and your partner often will need to make sure that you’re on the same wavelength. LIBRA draws a smile from you. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Generally, you feel passionate about situations and people. A new person who might walk into your life at any time could intrigue you and become a good friend. Give this person the space to reveal him- or herself. Note an element of confusion in present communications. Tonight: Let others express their needs and desires. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Be more forthright and direct in how you make choices. There could be a lot of questions surrounding a seemingly routine matter. You might be sensing some confusion about this situation. Understand your choices. Allow ingenuity to flow. Tonight: Midweek break. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You finally flow more with the moment and with those around you. Your imagination soars, especially if you’re around a child or loved one. Take some of this gift into your outside life. Others will appreciate your ingenuity and lightness. Tonight: Only where you can have fun. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Be sure that you can take on another responsibility. Rather than saying “yes” quickly, take your time. You might not want to commit just yet. Time remains your ally. You could want a change or to add more variety in your life. Tonight: Entertain from your pad. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH A bevy of calls and people greet you this morning. If you have plans, you might screen some of this activity and let others know that you’ll make time later. A call from a distant person or an expert holds important information. Tonight: Favorite person, favorite spot. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

tional support via phone calls, texts, visits and cards. While I don’t begrudge her the gifts and support, I’m very hurt that all I received was a handful of cards, an occasional phone call or text and one visit from one person. Only one of my co-workers stuck by me through everything. I see these people all the time, and I’m having a hard time with my hurt feelings. Any thoughts on how I can move on? As a sidebar, these people are always the first ones to ask me for help and support at work. -- HURT IN THE EAST DEAR HURT: There is nothing to be gained by nursing this disappointment. You and this woman are different people and likely have different relationships with these co-workers. If you don’t want to help the people you feel gave you short shrift by comparison, you are free not to. But if you intend to continue working at the place you now do, recognize that it is time to put this behind you and move forward.

DEAR ABBY: My husband went to his 45th class reunion a state away and hooked up with a classmate. Over the next few months it went from talking and texting to her sending him nude pictures of herself. I found her emails professing her love to him. When I asked him, he swore nothing happened between them during the two weeks he was there other than a lunch date. After further investigation, I have discovered they had more than 30 hours of phone conversations, exchanged 4,000-plus texts and who knows the number of emails. Not only that, he bought another phone so I could no longer see the interactions on our shared cell account. He finally admitted they did have a sexual encounter. He has now agreed to end all contact with her and work on our marriage. He has apologized, but I’m struggling to believe him because every time I found damning evidence, he would make up another excuse or blame it all on her. However, he never told her to stop or blocked her. Is it time to cut my losses, or should I wait to see if he does this again? Why do people think having affairs is a good thing? -- CONFUSED IN MONTANA

Offers available in AK, IA, ID, IL, KS, MN, MO, MT, NE, UT, WI and WY. Portfolio by Wells Fargo® customers are eligible to receive an additional bonus interest rate on these accounts.3 1. To qualify for this offer, you must have a new or existing Platinum Savings account and enroll the account in this offer between 03/25/2019 and 05/31/2019. This offer is subject to change at any time, without notice. This offer is available only to Platinum Savings customers in the following states: AK, IA, ID, IL, KS, MN, MO, MT, NE, UT, WI and WY. In order to earn the Special Interest Rate of 2.08% (Special Rate), you must deposit $25,000 in new money (from sources outside of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., or its affiliates) to the enrolled savings account and maintain a minimum daily account balance of $25,000 throughout the term of this offer. The corresponding Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for this offer is 2.10%. The Special Rate will be applied to the enrolled savings account for a period of 12 months, starting on the date the account is enrolled in the offer. However, for any day during that 12 month period that the daily account balance is less than the $25,000 minimum, the Special Rate will not apply, and the interest rate will revert to the standard interest rate applicable to your Platinum Savings account. As of 02/15/2019, the standard interest rate and APY for a Platinum Savings account in AK, ID, KS, MN, MO, MT, NE and WY with an account balance of $0.01 to $9,999.99 is 0.05% (0.05% APY), $10,000 to $49,999.99 is 0.15% (0.15% APY), $50,000 to $99,999.99 is 0.25% (0.25% APY) and with an account balance of $100,000 and above is 0.35% (0.35% APY); and for a Platinum Savings account in IA, IL, UT and WI with an account balance of $0.01 to $99,999.99 is 0.05% (0.05% APY) and with an account balance of $100,000 and above is 0.10% (0.10% APY). Each tier shown reflects the current minimum daily collected balance required to obtain the applicable APY. Interest is compounded daily and paid monthly. The amount of interest earned is based on the daily collected balances in the account. Upon the expiration of the 12 month promotional period, standard interest rates apply. Minimum to open a Platinum Savings account is $25. A monthly service fee of $12 applies in any month the account falls below a $3,500 minimum daily balance. Fees may reduce earnings. Interest rates are variable and subject to change without notice. Wells Fargo may limit the amount you deposit to a Platinum Savings account to an aggregate of $1 million. Offer not available to Private Banking or Wealth customers. 2. Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is effective for accounts opened between 03/25/2019 to 05/31/2019. The 11-month New Dollar CD special requires a minimum of $25,000 brought to Wells Fargo from sources outside of Wells Fargo Bank N.A., or its affiliates to earn the advertised APY. Public Funds and Wholesale accounts are not eligible for this offer. APY assumes interest remains on deposit until maturity. Interest is compounded daily. Payment of interest on CDs is based on term: For terms less than 12 months (365 days), interest may be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or at maturity (the end of the term). For terms of 12 months or more, interest may be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. A fee for early withdrawal will be imposed and could reduce earnings on this account. Special Rates are applicable to the initial term of the CD only. At maturity, the Special Rate CD will automatically renew for a term of 6 months, at the interest rate and APY in effect for CDs on renewal date not subject to a Special Rate, unless the Bank has notified you otherwise. 1,2. Due to the new money requirement, accounts may only be opened at your local branch. Wells Fargo reserves the right to modify or discontinue the offer at any time without notice. Minimum new money deposit requirement of at least $25,000 is for this offer only and cannot be transferred to another account to qualify for any other consumer deposit offer. If you wish to take advantage of another consumer deposit offer requiring a minimum new money deposit, you will be required to do so with another new money deposit as stated in the offer requirements and qualifications. Offer cannot be combined with any other consumer deposit offer, except the Portfolio by Wells Fargo $500 offer, available from March 25, 2019 until May 31, 2019. Offer cannot be reproduced, purchased, sold, transferred, or traded. 3. The Portfolio by Wells Fargo program has a $30 monthly service fee, which can be avoided when you have one of the following qualifying balances: $25,000 or more in qualifying linked bank deposit accounts (checking, savings, CDs, FDIC-insured IRAs) or $50,000 or more in any combination of qualifying linked banking, brokerage (available through Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC) and credit balances (including 10% of mortgage balances, certain mortgages not eligible). If the Portfolio by Wells Fargo relationship is terminated, the bonus interest rate on all eligible savings accounts, and discounts or fee waivers on other products and services, will discontinue and revert to the Bank’s then-current applicable rate or fee. For bonus interest rates on time accounts, this change will occur upon renewal. If the Portfolio by Wells Fargo relationship is terminated, the remaining unlinked Wells Fargo Portfolio Checking or Wells Fargo Prime Checking account will be converted to another checking product or closed. © 2019 Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
